President Donald Trump criticized Democrats after the House passed an anti-hate resolution on Thursday, accusing them of becoming an “anti-Jewish party.” The resolution, that originally condemned anti-Semitism, was drawn up in response to comments and tweets from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
“I thought yesterday’s vote by the house was disgraceful because it has become, the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. I thought that vote was a disgrace. If you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party and anti-Jewish party,” Trump said.
Before heading to Alabama, Trump calls Democrats an “anti-Israel party” and an “anti-Jewish party.” (this will dredge up a lot of past statements of his own re “very fine people” in Charlottesville, etc)
